Over 50 excellent applications for undergrad and grad programmes and research internships and positions at UPSaclay have been filed in by first-rate students and researchers from MIT, Harvard, Northeastern University, Tufts University, Boston University, and other prestigious American universities.

The candidates have most various academic and scientific backgrounds and expectations: French students enrolled in master’s programmes in the US and wishing to acquire research experience or a PhD at UPSaclay, American and international students looking for short-term and long-term educational opportunities in Europe and attracted by programmes offered by UPSaclay, talented researchers and postdocs looking for European fellows to collaborate, brilliant innovators seeking to create their own lab, and dozens of other finest applicants.

With follow-up actions on the way, UPSaclay will be happy to have all of them on campus starting with the next academic year, where they will be able to make all their revolutionary ideas come true.

The university was represented by its central division of international affairs (director Guillaume Garreta and projects coordinator Sergei Shikalov) and three of its member institutions (Catherine Stephan-Evain, director of international relations of ENS Paris-Saclay, Jeanne Beyrand, international projects office at AgroParisTech, and Said Zouhdi, director of international relations of Polytech Paris-Sud representing UPSud).
